Germany announces ban on arms exports to Saudi Arabia

“The German government has halted arms sales to Saudi Arabia and slapped a travel ban on a group of Saudi nationals in response to the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, according to news reports on Monday. German daily Die Welt reported that all exports of arms would be stopped, including deals that have already been finalized. This would include the sale of 20 patrol boats. Two of the vessels had already been approved for delivery. The duration of the ban is not yet clear, but the government announced that it would urge other European Union governments to follow suit. Additionally, Germany has issued travel bans for 18 Saudi citizens, following a similar measure undertaken by France.”
